Facade of the State Children's Hospital, Rio de Janeiro

In honor of the National Day of Organ Donation, celebrated on the 27th, the State Department of Health will promote a series of actions to remember the importance of the noble gesture. Opening the celebrations, the State Children's Hospital held a party to celebrate the lives of 13 patients in the pediatric transplant unit. Opened in March 2013, the unit of the State Government in Vila Valqueire is today the only liver transplant center enabled to operate children in Rio de Janeiro.

Rather than celebrate, we want to draw people's attention to the importance of organ donation. We are every day doing our part, providing structure to increase the number of transplants increasingly. In addition to the State Children's Hospital, the State Center for Transplants is also with excellent production. All in less than one year. But for this we must all have the awareness that organ donation is a gesture that saves lives highlights the Secretary of State for Health, Sergio Cortes.

Other events mark the week of the National Day of Organ Donation. On Tuesday (24), the State of Rio de Janeiro win the second Eye Bank in partnership with the National Institute of Traumatology and Orthopedics (Into). The initiative aims to relieve the waiting list for corneal transplantation in the state. Ending stocks in the National Day of Organ Donation, September 27, there will be a Mass celebrated by the Archbishop of Rio de Janeiro, Dom Orani Tempesta Tranplantes in State Center, located in St. Francis Hospital in Providence of God. Transplant patients also give testimonials showing how their lives changed after transplantation.
